Push --mirror large repos fail

I can’t “push --mirror” a large (1.3gb 750k commits) repository to my gitlab server . I’ve had to push it branch by branch. Which is really annoying

Setting unicorn['worker_timeout'] = 3600 hasn’t helped

Any advice on other values to tune.

This error is shown in gitlab-shell/gitlab-shell.log

Hi - did you ever get to the bottom of this issue. I am seeing similar errors in our environment and it ends up causing the system to become slow and finally unresponsive. I have a call logged with Gitlab support but would appreciate any direction whilst waiting on that. I’ll post up anything they find when available but have previously been told Gitlab is intelligent enough to manage the number of worker processes etc so haven’t amended anything there.



No I never got to the bottom of the issue.
